Is Google's cache getting older?

I have noticed that none of Google's cached versions of web pages that feature in the SERPs that I watch have been updated for several weeks.

It's been a while since I kept an eye on these things, so is this just the new normal?

New normal. Wouldn't be surprised if Google's cache eventually goes the way of toolbar pagerank.

Maybe new normal, maybe not, but now's not a time to expect anything like normal behavior. . See notes in this thread....

April 2019 Google indexing & reporting bugs continue... It's not you!

I wouldn't be surprised if they do drop the cache, albeit it's arguably useful for many Google users.

The most recent cache date and associated content I can find for our pages (and any other site I've looked at so far) is March 30th, even for pages that we have refetched since then through Google Search Console.

I'm seeing the same, so set up a little test by adding a unique line of text to a page.

The page appears fine in the SERPs for the phrase as expected but the cached version still shows the version without the phrase.
